Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Hermitage Boulevard

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My aunt was in Brookdale community in another city, and we moved her to Sterling House of Tallahassee, which is another Brookdale community, so we didn't have to pay a new community fee. The staff is helpful. I did see their dining area, and there is not a lot of continuity at the table setting. The food lacks a lot of styling and color, and it tends to be a little bland. The quality and time of delivery are not consistent. The menu also is unpredictable. The room is fine. The window is nice -- i.e., double-paned window -- and they put blinds. They gave my aunt new carpet. The property is well maintained, and the rooms are nice and clean. It is extremely secure, so much so that we have difficulty of getting in. They do have activities. They have little mind game,s and they have a vehicle that takes them to Wal-Mart and different places like that. However, they could improve on having more alert staff.

I visited this facility

The rooms at Sterling House of Tallahassee are very small. I think the staff at this facility is fine and they do their job quite well. Their dining area is open and within a large area. It's nice and clean.

I visited this facility

Sterling House was basically a full-service facility; however, what we're most interested in was the fact that my mother-in-law could be transferred to their sister company if she got worse. This facility pretty much offers everything. The staff was very nice and they have a very nice outdoor area. We were able to check out two rooms. They were well maintained and of good size. They did have very nice large walk-in closet and large shower area. There was also a safety feature in the bathroom.

I visited this facility

I remember Sterling House especially when I visited several facilities for my mother. It's a very nice and clean facility. It appeared well taken care of. However, the whole complex was a little bit smaller than the ones we looked at. Also, the rooms were not spacious enough and you're very limited in what you can bring in. They're all very similar in size and how they're set-up. Another 25 or 30 square feet would make a difference.
